I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had a great day!
Yesterday was another out of town Dr’s appointment for me so I am exhausted but dinner still needed to be made so I at least have posts for today and tomorrow with recipes I hope you all enjoy because today is going to be another long day….
Today Kim and I are making the trek to visit my grandmother, her great grandmother. We are looking at a good 3 or 4 hour round trip but it’s worth it to go see our “Nan.” Nan is my cooking inspiration. When I was growing up, she always had delicious meals and treats ready for us whenever we visited her and more than that, she actually loved to cook. My mother cooked but there was no enjoyment to it like with my Nan. Even now, there are some recipes that I make, like my Potato Soup, that when I cook it feels like she is right there with me! Memories of her cooking, and more important than that, her acceptance of my crazy personality, are some of my best memories!
Last night with dinner I cooked some asparagus. I baked it in the oven, smothered in cheese and cream! (And… It passed the chocolate milk test lol)
Here are all the ingredients, all 5 of them! How much easier could that be?
I washed and trimmed the asparagus and placed it in a greased baking pan.
I poured the heavy cream over them and sprinkled it with the minced garlic.
Then spread the grated cheese on top, followed by the parmesan and black pepper.
I baked it at 400 degrees for about 25 – 30 minutes, until the asparagus was tender and then served.
